MD_DataIdentification

Count Component Title Abstract
1 Operational Linescan System (OLS) - Derived Products (including posters and slides) Visible and infrared imagery from DMSP Operational Linescan System (OLS) instruments are used to monitor the global distribution of clouds and cloud top temperatures twice each day. The archive data set consists of low resolution global and high resolution regional, imagery recorded along a 3,000 km scan, satellite ephemeris and solar and lunar information.
